Playing Without a Partner

A Singles' Guide to Sex, Dating, and Happiness

There are more single adults in the US now than ever before, about 45% of the population (according to the 2018 US Census). Whether single by choice or actively looking for a partner, single adults face unique challenges in their sexual and sensual lives. There is this idea that long-term couples have stagnant sex, and singles are out there partying and having great sex. But singles often deal with near-strangers who don't know their bodies, and don't necessarily have love, trust, and respect for them. This doesn't always make for better sex, or even good sex, so how do we make this easier?

Sexologist and relationships expert Megan Stubbs is here to kill the stigma attached to single lifestyles, and provide advice on how to not only embrace single sexuality, but make the most of  the time while single. This is not an advice book on how to find a partner to cure what ails you—this book recognizes that whether looking for a long-term partner, actively dating, or happily single, there can be difficult aspects to single sexuality. But there are also ways to optimize your pleasure, improve your interactions, feel sensual and erotic, and have an empowered sex life while still single. Join Stubbs on this all-inclusive journey through singlehood!
